Thank you for the reviews, favs, and alerts! *HUGS* This is the last chapter! :D I'm so happy I finished this story, because honestly I haven't written in a year or so, and this really made me feel accomplished. xD

"Annabeth, wait…"

"Shut up, Seaweed Brain," Annabeth muttered roughly. Why was he making this so difficult?

"Really, just stop… for a sec," Percy said in-between kisses. His words came out a bit more forceful this time. Annabeth ignored him and continued to plant kisses all over his neck.

Although it was hard, Percy grabbed Annabeth's arms and stopped her attack on his neck. Annabeth groaned, frustrated with Percy's persistence.

"Annabeth, what brought this on? You usually stop me."

"Percy, why are you making this so difficult? Isn't this what you want?" she questioned, annoyed.

"What do you mean? You were distant and pushed me away yesterday and now you're all over me," he replied, puzzled.

"Not that I'm not enjoying this -because I am- but you just don't seem like yourself, Wisegirl," he gently said, trying not to wound her pride. Percy's hands still lingered on her lower back, his fingers creating patterns.

Annabeth sighed, defeated. She looked at their current state, then back at the confused green eyes.

"Please Annabeth, just tell me what's wrong," he pleaded, eyebrows drawing upwards.

Annabeth's resolve broke, and her shoulders sagged. She buried her head into his shoulder.

"You're going to be mad," her muffled response came. When Percy didn't say anything, she continued, "I thought that… I thought you were sneaking around behind my back," she admitted.

Frustration built up in Percy. He went silent, his face blank. Annabeth couldn't stand the silence. She couldn't tell what he was thinking.

Suddenly, Percy gripped Annabeth's shoulders, making her face him fully. His expression was angry and shocked, but most of all, he looked disappointed.

"Annabeth," his voice was intense, "How… why would you even believe that? What ever made you think that?" His expression was fierce, and his voice wavered. Annabeth felt ashamed. But she had to explain herself, "The day I went to the spa. There were two girls from my school. We started talking, and they some things… I'm so sorry, Percy. I jumped to conclusions, and I wasn't thinking…,"

Percy snorted at that.

"No, you weren't."

"But what about that girl you were talking to yesterday? She seemed very friendly," Annabeth stated hotly. Now it was Percy's turn to look away. "You've been hiding something, too. Speak up, Jackson," Annabeth accused, getting off of the demigod and standing with her arms crossed.

"That girl was my tutor," he admitted.

Annabeth's eyebrows shot up. She certainly wasn't expecting that, and she didn't know what to say. Percy hadn't ever said a thing about his grades, or anything.

"My grade in math hasn't been so good. She's a girl in my class and happened to be a tutor."

"Percy, why didn't you tell me? I could have helped," she said, feeling slightly hurt that he kept this away from her.

"That's the thing; I didn't want you to feel obligated to help me. This way we'd both be happy, and you wouldn't have to worry," he said, trying to make her understand, "but you could have talked to me, Annabeth. You didn't have to believe what those girls said."

"What was I supposed to believe, Percy? You were keeping something from me, and then I see that girl hugging and kissing you," Annabeth retorted, angered.

"She only did that because I was improving. It's not like I was expecting it," he replied hotly, "and it's not like I wanted her to, anyway," he added.

Annabeth looked away, not sure what to say. Sure, she over-reacted, but really, with what she saw, she had a right to believe something was up. Now that she knew what was really going on, she felt foolish. She had easily believed and assumed.

"You're right," she admitted, "I should have come to you and sorted this whole thing out. I'm really sorry Percy."

Truthfully, she was relieved. She knew the truth now, but she also knew she had hurt their relationship.

Percy stood in front of her now. He held her hands and looked at Annabeth, his expression strong.

"Annabeth, I love you. So much," he said with so much sincerity it made Annabeth's heart swell and her breath catch, "I'm sorry if I made it seem that way. You know it wasn't intentional," he smiled slightly.

Annabeth returned his smile, letting out a long breath.

"I love you too, Seaweed Brain."

Now Percy was grinning. He wrapped his arms around her once again.

"Baby…," he dipped her low and looked into her eyes, "you're my forever girl." And he leaned in for a kiss.*

Annabeth was to busy laughing to kiss him. She stood up straight, clutching her sides, "Wh-where did you get that cheesy pick-up line?" she asked.

Percy chuckled, his cheeks pink. "I heard it on a cartoon and thought I'd give it a try," he winked, laughing along. Annabeth shook her head, and her suspicions of kelp in his head were confirmed.

Their laughing died down and now Percy was staring at the goddess in-front of him.

"So… why don't we get back to where we left off…," Percy trailed off, suggestively waggling his eyebrows.

Annabeth smirked, pushing him back on the bed and straddling him again. She leaned into his ear, "Well Mr. Jackson, I'd love to," she said, her voice low, "but, I have to go."

She stood quickly, grabbing her coat. Percy whined and protested, grabbing her hands and willing her not to leave. She gave him a kiss and swayed to the door.

"See you tomorrow," she waved dismissively. Percy continued to protest, but Annabeth simply shrugged his pleas away. When she got to her car, her heart was beating wildly. She was happy that everything had worked out, and plus, she hadn't made a total fool of herself. She wasn't feeling too guilty, either, because she would just be back tomorrow to finish what she started.


Ta-daaa! The end. :)

*That forever girl line was actually from Avatar: The Last Airbender. A cartoon I loooove and I thought that line would be hilarious to put. So yeah, if you get the reference, you'll understand. :p

So what did you all think? Please let me know! Revieeeew! :]
